By Metal Friend on October 22, 2011
Format: MP3 Music
Sometimes exceptional bands go virtually unnoticed. It is a musical travesty when they do. German thrash kings Tankard fit that bill.

I made a two-CD compilation of what I considered Tankard's best, and after spinning it for a few months, loaned it to a friend. That was two years ago. Every time I see him, even though I remind him several times every day starting a week before, he conveniently "forgets" to bring them. I would think them lost, but I rode in his car a few days ago and both were in his six-CD changer. Tool! Shame on me for not thrashing you senseless and ripping them from your grasp. Next time, my friend, I shalt not forget.

I have several Tankard albums still in their wrappers from the olden days. I cannot for the life of me understand how a band of this caliber can fly so far under the metal radar. Their most recent release, Vol(l)ume 14 displays the technical proficiency they have only tightened over time. On every Tankard offering there is a bevy of tight thrash licks, understandable vocals presentations, and even some choral passages. Vol(l)ume 14 is no exception, featuring their ever-present speed-kills metality, seamless breakdowns, and sing along moments. Swear it.

I have never attended one of Tankard's concerts, though I own two live performances and five albums in my collection. As if to go against conventional wisdom, they first started as a five piece band, and now are a four piece. Those of you who have heard their lightspeed tempos realize how amazing performing with just one guitarist is. These weren't doctored recordings (like Zeppelin's The Song Remains the Same); these were actual recordings of the band playing live. They are technically adept, too, able to reproduce live exactly what they record in the studio.
